Work like Chavez

On releasing this new song, Rebel Diaz said: "We are living historic moments of oppression to which we can only respond with historic moments of resistance!! It is time to Work Like Chavez!"


For those who are not familiar with Rebel Diaz -- from their website: Fronted by MC’s Rodstarz,
MC/Producer G1, and backed by Producer/DJ Illanoiz, Rebel Diaz shows us the true global power of Hip-Hop. After first performing at an immigrant rights march in New York City in 2006 in front of a half million people, the bilingual crew has taken the international community by storm with their explosive live shows. With influences ranging from Dirty South bounce to South American folk, Rebel Diaz combines classic boom bap tradition with Hip-Hop’s global impact. The group’s versatility has allowed for them to share the stage with the likes of Common, Mos Def, and Public Enemy, while feeling right at home with acts like Rage Against the Machine, and Calle 13. Multiple tours throughout Europe and Latin America have only solidified their international appeal. They have spent the last 7 years visiting dozens of colleges and universities, facilitating workshops, speaking on panels, and performing at national conferences.

Building on this growing network of positive young people in Hip-Hop, the group opened a community arts center in the South Bronx in 2008, the Rebel Diaz Arts Collective (RDACBX). On the heals of their critically acclaimed Otro Guerrillero mixtape series, and 2011′s #Occupy The Airwaves mixtape, Rebel Diaz releases their debut album, The Radical Dilemma in Spring 2013.
